Pre LCI with splitters is the best looking bumper in my opinion if u don't mind the hood.
I'm fighting the urge to do the LCI front conversion, I really want the LCI hood but as far as I know, you have to change the bumper/grills too.
As for the rear, I love the LCI tail lights, hate the pre-LCI.
Not really a 1M rep on the market (I wouldn't consider it a rep when it is an OEM piece being hacked up and fitted to the car)

I would like to see one on an E90 now myself (I inquired about just the bumper just to get an idea and I have a competent body shop)

I thought about 1m rep but its looks hard to put together locally and no one from ltbmw is resonding

I'm having this same debate... LCI msport with exotics tuning lip looks awesome but again much more time, effort, and money than the pre-lci msport with 3d tuning lip which also looks awesome. Voted.

Looks good,

Where did you get the lip and bumper from?

I'm partial to the pre-LCI M Tech...

I'm in the process of sourcing a custom lip designer for this bumper that might merge some new, flowing lines into the classic pre LCI look. Going for a flat black to go with the OSS full black out I just added...
